Dit de kleinste van het stel
Ginny is haar naam.
14 days old!
This little cutie is called GINNY
Ze heeft sinds vanmorgen haar oogjes open…
Wat een lief scheetje is ze toch hé?
She just opent up her eyes this morning
Isn’t she the best?

I talk to him when I'm lonesome like;
And I'm sure he understands.
When he looks at me so attentively,
And gently licks my hands;
Then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes,
But I never say naught thereat.
For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes,
But never a friend like that.

Our scruffy doggy called Rico,
Why Own A Dog?
Why own a dog? There's a danger you know,
You can't own just one, for the craving will grow.
There's no doubt they're addictive, wherein lies the danger.
While living with lots, you'll grow poorer and stranger.
One dog is no trouble, and two are so funny.
The third one is easy, the fourth one's a honey.
The fifth one's delightful, the sixth one's a breeze,
You find you can live with a houseful of ease.
So how 'bout another? Would you really dare?
They're really quite easy but, oh, Lord the hair!
With dogs on the sofa and dogs on the bed,
And crates in the kitchen, it's no bother, you've said.
They're really no trouble, their manners are great.
What's one more dog and just one more crate?
The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty,
The floor is all footprints, the furniture dusty.
The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care?
Who minds a few noseprints and a little more hair?
So let's keep a puppy, you can always find room,
And a little more time for the dust cloth and broom.
There's hardly a limit to the dogs you can add,
The thought of a cutback sure makes you sad.
Each one is so special, so useful, so funny.
The vet and food bills grows larger, you owe BIG money.
Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay,
Except other "dog folks" who live the same way.
Your lawn has now died, and your shrubs are dead too,
But your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.
There's dog food and vitamins, training and shots.
And entries and travel and motels which cost lots.
Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?
Then that favorite one comes and climbs in your lap.
His look says you're special and you know that you will
Keep all of the critters in spite of the bill.
Some just for showing and some just to breed.
And some just for loving, they all fill a need.
God, winter's a hassle, the dogs hate it too.
But they must have their walks
though they're numb and your blue.
Late evening is awful, you scream and you shout
At the dogs on the sofa who refuse to go out.
The dogs and the dog shows, the travel, the thrills,
The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills.
The whole thing seems worth it, the dogs are your life.
They're charming and funny and offset the strife.
Your life-style has changed. Things won't be the same.
Yes, those dogs are addictive and so is the dog game.
I took photo’s of the birth.
Chica began at 21.45h
and now it’s 4AM…
and I am still awake and watching
over Chica and her little ones!
She gave birth to 6 puppy’s in total,
5 sweet little girls and one handsome boy ;o)
Do you see her cute little tail?
Welcome little ones!
Plant flowers and plants that are attractive to bees
and butterflies. Faeries are attracted to any place where
there are butterflies. Put nuts out for the squirrels.
Whatever you do to bring life to your garden
will bring Faeries as well.
Here is a short list of plants that attract beautiful
butterflies and faeries to your garden:
*Achillea millefolium (common yarrow)
*Aster novi-belgii (New York aster)
*Chrysanthemum maximum (Shasta daisy)
*Coreopsis grandiflora/certicillata (coreopsis)
*Lavendula denata (French lavender)
*Rosemarinus officinalis (rosemary)
*Buddleia alternifolia (fountain butterfly bush)
*Buddleia davidii (orange-eye butterfly bush, summer lilac)
*Potenilla fruitiosa (shrubby cinquefoil)
*Petunia hybrida (common garden petunia)
*Verbena (verbenas, vervains)
*Scabiosa caucasica (pincushion flowers)
*Cosmos bipinnatus (cosmos)
*Zinnia elegans (common zinnia)
Install a small fountain or waterfall or put fish in a pond.
You might want to include a statue of faeries.
Anything that reflects light or is colourful and moving
particularly attracts the gnomes and elves.
Both faeries and water sprites like the splashy sound
and sight of a fountain.
Leave an area of your garden a bit wild and not too
cultivated. It need not be a large space, but having one
area that is dedicated to the faeries will make
them feel very welcome.
Ask faeries and elves to come to your garden.
“Where Intention goes, Energy flows.”
Whatever you place your conscious awareness on,
you will put into your life. As you put your attention
on faeries and gnomes and the elemental realm,
they will respond by being drawn into your garden.
